MPAA Betting On Its Next Silver Bullet

However, it appears the MPAA didn't bother to watch that movie, and are starting down the same path, excitedly talking about how a different (but remarkably similar sounding) offering from tech firm Guba to spot copyrighted video content will be important for them. Even more amusing, though is the quote from a Guba exec that: "It was great in the old days, where you could just cue up The Daily Show. But those days of 'cowboy content' are over." Hmm. That's why one of the most viewed videos today on YouTube is the Daily Show clip we discussed yesterday about net neutrality. Of course, much more important is that the folks behind the Daily Show have made it clear that they're happy about that content being available online -- and they have no intention of trying to stop it.
